Nintendo believes that local gaming hardware isn’t going anywhere, with the company thinking that while game streaming will become increasingly popular it won’t replace local experiences, mearly add to them.

We also have AMD partner with the DOE and CRAY to create the worlds most powerful super computer known as frontier. Frontier will be a mixture of AMD Radeon instinct gpus and Epyc zen custom cpus to put out an incredible amount of performance.

  1. Now that AMD have removed 3rd gen TR from their roadmap which really sucks balls (due to winning a major super computer contract, so not enough 7nm silicone for mainstream users), I highly suspect that 3rd gen Ryzen will be notably more expensive than previously advertised.

  2. Cloud gaming latency must reach microsecond levels at 4k for them to be any real threat to dedicated desktop or consoles. This is terabyte per second bidirectional optical transfers.

  3. Cloud gaming ,and Google's Stadia are trash,I will never touch. PC Masterrace rules.
    Barrie Trower, Paul,talk to him,face to face. Genius,worked for the British military as an Engineer.Look what they did to John Dvorak when he spoke out about 5G safety.

  4. only people who would benefit from cloud gaming as google is working on it are those with low end hardware but fiber internet access that must be wired into your home if not you dont have access and should not try to cloud game. fun fact cloud gaming in mind you could build a pc without dedicated graphics put more money into cpu motherboard ram and even go all ssd for storage. a i7 8700k with 32gb 3200mhz ram and tbs of nvme without graphics card would be high end for cloud only gaming. for now a i9 9900k would be overkill and you want hyperthreading so dont use i7 9700k.

  5. Hi Paul, this is my two cent, Cable Tv will be streaming, same as gaming. Everything will be internet base. Games and Tv will be seen as one the furture, period, you can only do one or the other, but not both. What do you think, am I way off?

  6. Unless someone can somehow replace our current ISP and add less regulation and more competition cloud gaming will take quite a long time to come around. Gonna kill the exp w lots of lag spikes bc everyone else is trying to stream 4k gaming . Then the days of counting fata will come back.

  7. 90 miles of wiring, to give some context, very few people are able to cycle that on one day.
    That AMD got this contract for that supercomputer of one of the richest research-institutes in the world is a big deal for them, it is like a halo-product and AMD also gets a big budget to further develop their open software (AMD's CUDA equivalent). The second big win after a German university partnered with AMD. I literally don't care about the upcoming Intel CPU's. We know that Intel can't improve the performance any further on that 14 nm node of theirs. The node is 100% efficient, the routing is 100% efficient…Intel is done with it. Until 2022 it is only about more cores and/or lower prices for Intel desktop/HEDT/server. Boring. Ryzen/TR/Epyc will also keep getting a nice boost in 'IPC' and clock frequency in those years.

  8. I am concerned about cloud-gaming: publishers might only offer cloud-gaming because it is easy DRM and I dislike cloud-gaming because of the latency, lower performance, visual problems (agressive compression is required) and of course the DRM. The best gaming is local gaming without any DRM. It is cool though that Google uses Vulkan and Linux. Maybe Linux will become the primary gaming platform, also for local gaming.

  9. Red Gaming Tech BIG QUESTION
    I've tried and failed to find any evidence that a CPU or GPU is being designed in part through software that follows evolutionary algorithms. Huh? By that I mean you design a CPU in software so you can run it virtually. You then run software through it. The software then modifies the CPU then repeats the benchmarks. In theory this should perfectly optimize the hardware for a piece of software at which point you balance it for different types of software. It's an obvious way to design a CPU if possible, so are there practical limits in software design or processing time that limit this evolutionary approach?

  10. "can it run Crysis"
    I know you were being a bit silly when you said "of course it has exaflops" or whatever, but actually Crysis #1 is still bottlenecked heavily by single core performance with a 5GHz i7-8700K still dropping below 60FPS so AFAIK it's still impossible outside of nitrogen-cooled, overclocked modern i7/i9 Intel CPU's to constantly hit 60FPS.

  11. Now I can have lag and compressed video in my single player games! Thanks Stadia!

    At 25 mbits translates to 3 MB/s or 180 MB a minute which is a about 11 GB an hour. If you have a 300GB data cap, you'll hit it within 27 hours doing nothing else including Netflix and YouTube. You'll pay more in data fees and subscription costs than the most expensive PC build in just a few months. Revolutionary!

  12. The Cloud Service can't edit 4k video footage and local hardware will always be superior unless companies like Comcast etc. aka the ISP improve network connections when speed is no longer a concern and it doesn't degrade resolutions. Streaming in 4k compared to a 4k Blue Ray disc is noticeable and prefer the disc option at 4k. I live stream games and I have to lower all my settings just to stream at a 720P resolution, so the masses can watch it. When streaming gets to the point where I don't have to downscale resolutions and lower game settings it will be glorious! However if you are not a PC gamer then cloud gaming might appeal to you because it's cheaper and you don't need a lot of knowledge of hardware, software etc. When I was younger I played on all the consoles you can think of, but when I learned to build my own PC I never looked back.

  13. On the subject of streaming…. I am an old bloke and I'm not really an active gamer, so … You do have games now that connect to a server online, and then you have all the video processing done locally. This would differ, in that some (most of) your video would be done on the server. That means if you live in L.A. and you have a broadband ISP and a low latency, you'll see pretty impressive things on the screen of your fairly low spec pc or laptop. (Or cheaper console.) But if like me, you live in Brisbane Australia, and your ISP is the local chapter of the Hell's Accountants, then you're really not able to even run single player mode. When my ISP don't like me and they think I should upgrade my deal with them, I have 28.8k speeds just like my dial-up connection in 1995. So in '95 I could swear about that and go play Duke Nukem 3D in local. You won't be able to do that…. No fast stable low lag network, means your Xbox or Nintendo doesn't work, exactly like your facebook… You better remember to pay your phonebill.

  14. I'm excited about Stadia, because I'm already playing through GeForce Now, but apart from gaming, I have no use for a Windows PC. I can use Samsung DeX and get Stadia on Android, be it my Note 9 or my shitty Android tablet. I'll just buy the controller and I'm good to go

  15. I thought i red on wccftech that the deal would only give them 600 thousand… but went to find it again, and its 600million (obvsly). Good for them. Thats probably the sale value and not the profit… dont know what kind of impact it will have for AMD, i mean, its alot of money, but what im saying is that i have no idea what a big company can do with 600million (or the profit from the 600million), could that radically change theor RnD??

  16. I had an argument with my friend a month ago when I said AMD will take some server market he was like no these companies are too comfortable with Intel Xeon and dont trust AMD , now they are building the fastest supercomputer in the world that is all AMD. I guess i get the last laugh.
